    Who here sells winch lines and is going to the rally in Moab?

    Looks like recommended service life of synthetic line is like 6 years ish and less if its been abused or shocked.

    Who here sells winch lines and is going to the rally in Moab?

    Make me a great a deal and I will buy it from ya versus order online tuesday for friday deliver and pay 2 day shipping, or just getting that 5th year outta my line.

    I need 3/8" about 90 feet, and want someone to re attach my hook etc. chafe guards are handy and I like HD.

    my amsteel blue is about 4 solid yrs old now, and well scuffaged. It did what it said it would and did it well. I'd buy it again, unless you have something else at the same pricepoint.

    I could get one more rally outta it but I suppose if I am feeling that way it may be a good time to spool some fresh line on for another 4 years of winching.

    My synthetic is over 7 years old and has pulled more people than I can count, scuffed up, yes, but by no means shot. Do you really need to replace it?

    www.winchline.com and have them Fed Ex it.

    You should learn how to install the line yourself.

    Have you ever had to braid your line back together on the trail?

    I agree on the installation, learn how to do the 5 minute job yourself.
    Back to my question earlier, why are you replacing yours?

    I realize this is premature. overkill, etc, and that it will probably last another few years, as I said, it really doesnt NEED to be changed, but I end up pulling folks out besides myself, and rather be safe than sorry. On the yotatech forums, they were suggesting every 6 years. I'm at 4.

    I've decided to replace same with same, despite the options out there for amsteel2, viking etc, I felt the amsteel regular is great for its performance and pricepoint.
    I went with the same exact rope in green from OKoffroad for $240

    No the old one is in good enough shape to use, or sell, there is really nothing WRONG with it. I will sell it to someone if they want it or it can go to ebay..

    Its about 90 feet of amsteel blue, its got both ends intact, asking $100 shipped if youre interested. great upgrade from 5/16 steel..

    Most 3/8th." rope is rated at around 20,000 plus, some up to around 24,000 pounds.
